Marilyn Manson is an American singer-songwriter, visual artist, actor, and record producer. He started hogging the limelight with his controversial yet super hit album ‘Antichrist Superstar.’ He is highly popular as well as notorious for his controversial stage personality. The singer, who is known for his outrageous behavior, has earned as many detractors as his fans over the years, thanks to his politically incorrect lyrics and unconventional music. He had a difficult childhood as he was molested repeatedly by a neighbor. Growing up, he felt lonely and began to write poems and songs. For several years, he struggled to make a living. In spite of being so talented, success evaded him. Eventually, he got noticed and was able to launch his musical career. Born as Brian Hugh Warner, the American singer adopted the stage name ‘Marilyn Manson’ when he began performing. From an early age he was eccentric and quirky. Even though his mother was religious, he harbored strong anti-Christian feelings which he expressed through his songs. His rebellious nature and refusal to adhere to religious norms endeared him to like-minded folks. His weird dressing style added to his charm. He often wears garish makeup and a stylized contact lens in one eye, which gives him the creepy look that his fans love so much.
